Packers LB Nick Perry Reportedly Has Broken Foot

Packers LB Nick Perry Reportedly Has Broken Foot

From Chris Terlop of WDUZ radio in Green Bay who works with Chris Havel:

Lance Allan of TMJ4 says the same thing:

Perry got hurt sacking and forcing a fumble on Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco on Sunday that led to a Packers' field goal as time expired before halftime.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Perry sprained his ankle on the play. He later returned for five plays in the second half.

Perry's injury seems to be coming at the worst possible time, with fellow outside linebacker Clay Matthews also expected to miss several weeks while recovering from thumb injury.

The second-year linebacker appeared to be coming into his own, notching three sacks in past two games.

Whether Perry is a candidate for short-term injured reserve remains to be seen.

Head coach Mike McCarthy will address the media with a 3:00 p.m. press conference and should provide an update even if he doesn't have all the details yet.

So he broke his foot on the play where we thought he hurt his ankle, or he broke it sometime later?

Ah who cares, either way this is a huge deal. Losing Clay was a big deal but now we are out both of our best OLB. That leaves us with Neal and??? very not good.

Earmuffs, all you impressionable children.

GOD FUCKING DAMMIT.

I hate that f-ing little ambulance.

It's as annoying as the Humpty Dump horn! I imagine that's what the siren would sound like.

It's like the f'in logo for this page this year

seriously - its 2009 again. and how similar was yesterday's game to the Jets game in East Rutherford...

i'm guessing he's out 4-5 weeks. if he played on it its probably not all that bad.

davyjones's picture

Is it 2009 all over again? or 2010??

Andy Mulumba, welcome to the NFL.

Evan's picture

If it's not season-ending, as has been reported, than that adds yet another player who is taking up a roster spot but not playing. A lot of tough roster decisions coming up.

I'd probably IR Bush, cut Kuhn and cut Wilson (and cut Hill once Starks is ready to go). Jones, Cobb or Perry seem destined for the short-term IR. That'll give them some room to bring up a couple WRs and another LB.

Idiot Fan's picture

I think this every year, but right now I really believe it - the NFL needs some equivalent of the 14-day DL. It's ridiculous that (almost) the only option is IR or taking up a valuable roster spot while not playing.

[Cue Stroh jumping in with "Your a retard, they have a short-term IR option! STFU!"]

Evan's picture

hehe...I'm gonna sit back and wait for him to explain the obvious to the oblivious.

RC Packer Fan's picture

I agree with you... I have been saying this they need more options other then IR, or the 6 game short term IR for 1 player.

I understand the NFL doesn't want teams hoarding talent, but they can adjust rules so teams can't do that.

But just think of this. Since the start of the season Casey Hayward, Morgan Burnett, GVR, CM3, James Starks, and the latest group of injured players, have missed or will miss multiple games. During that time wouldn't it have been nice if they could have signed other players?

I've been thinking roster expansion for a while now. At least PS expansion, please. If teams have to draw up more replacement guys, at least give them the opportunity of focus on football, rather than used car sales, in the months leading up to being put on an NFL roster.

LOL re other part of the post. I've been avoiding He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named for a while now. It's funny, he came on-line shortly before Cow42 disappeared...

I bleed Green More's picture

I told my brother this same thing yesterday, its time the NFL has it.

Stroh's picture

Why would I do that? If its being reported by the packers its seems pretty credible.

Any way, along w/ losing Matthews the Packers roster is the walking wounded.

Cobb or Perry seem to be out the longest, so one of them will get the IR w/ return in 6-8 wks. Hopefully the Packers are able to carry these guys w/o putting them all on IR. Only one can get the IR w/ return designation.

RC Packer Fan's picture

I had brought up the idea, or thought a few weeks ago that they might possibly try trading Wilson. He has value, but if they could get a 6th-7th round draft pick, I could see them doing so.

He has been a healthy scratch and he is way behind Jolly in terms of run stopping, which is supposed to be his forte.

Right now I would guess Hill will go to PS, and they will put one of those 3 on short term IR, pending on the injury's possibly 2 will go on IR...

Mojo's picture

Well if it's any consolation, they should have little trouble designating inactives.

Bibbon Hazel's picture

Cut KUUUUUUUUUHN?! Then who would we chat for??? How could you suggest cutting such a hard working solid veteran with the exact make up of what defines this great franchise!?!? #sarcasm I agree. Bush is hurt and a non factor with the young DBs able to exceed his DB skills and are just as capable on ST. As for Kuuuuhn, its obvious he is a non-contributor if all these linebackers are healthy but with them out hurt Kuhn will be needed to cover kicks and unfortunately be on the punt teams. Bush to IR, Hill to PS. Kuhn to the "Good, Bad Ugly" article weekly. Guess which one? Its only a matter of time... Maybe this is our injury free week! PAck 27-Browns 17.

Morgan Mundane's picture

What you said makes sense that's why it won't happen.

RC Packer Fan's picture

This really, really hurts. Perry was really starting to show everyone why he was a 1st round draft pick this year.

Just 1 question. When the Hell are the Packers going to catch a break with these injury's??? If the Packers can go 2-2 in the next 4 games I think that will be pretty impressive considering the mounting injuries...

Evan's picture

Shut your mouth.

3 home games against the Browns, Bears and Eagles plus @ Minnesota - they're going 4-0.

Idiot Fan's picture

The Eagles D is pretty poor, but we're going to need all hands on deck against that offense. I'm not looking forward to seeing Neal try to chase down McCoy. It would be really lovely if we could win the next two and then have Clay come back.

RC Packer Fan's picture

I think they can/should/will go 4-0. But who is going to be left to play?

I mean shit....

Down to 2 healthy WR's, OLB's, and who knows what will happen from here...

I really think the NFL is going to have to start adjusting its roster sizes somehow.

Evan's picture

Yeah, they're gonna have to waive a couple guys to bring up WR and LB reinforcements.

Idiot Fan's picture

If so, that really sucks. Although if the alternative is losing a good player for the year, I guess it's the better of the two. Maybe.

Evan's picture

As I said above, I really think Bush is a wasted roster space (House and Hyde are more than filling-in for him on special teams and they can both play D) and I'd say the same for Kuhn (though I doubt he goes anywhere).

RC Packer Fan's picture

Yeah, I agree with you Evan that they could let Bush go. Possibly to IR, pending on what his injury is. They will be having Hayward coming back at some point, and they just brought up Nixon.
That to go with Hyde and House they have plenty of options for special teams.
I don't see Kuhn going anywhere. I think he is a wasted roster spot to be honest, but I don't see them getting rid of him either.

I bleed Green More's picture

I think they could go 4-0 baring any more disasters.

Stroh's picture

How is this snake bitten team going to avoid any more disasters? If its not clear to anyone by now the injury situation this year is as bad or worse then '10. That's a lot of bad LUCK. Hopefully it has the same effect as '10 and leads to another run at the SB. Fingers crossed!

davyjones's picture

Injuries or not--even assuming the worst--I don't see another loss coming til week 13. :)

THEMichaelRose's picture

Happy thoughts......

Aaron Rodgers is healthy and playing okay!
We've had the same starting OL each game since Week 1!
Eddie Lacy and Jermichael look good!
AJ Hawk has never been better!
The DL sure knows how to stop the run!
Sam Shields is talented!
Mason Crosby doesn't suck!

Lucky953's picture

+1!

jim's picture

As many injuries as the Packers have had, you have to love their response to them. It was obvious to all of us that watched the game that Hawk, Perry, Hyde, and others mentioned played great games. But, did you notice Malumba on the end run that nearly resulted in a touchdown for the Ravens in the first half? He got in real low...under his blocker... I believe he also got a hand on the runners foot, forcing him to the outside. I thought he did a good job for what little experience he has. It is great to see the young lads getting coached up. Injuries are a bummer. But there are areas on this team that is neck deep in talent.

Happy thoughts...

My fantasy team is now set up for some big games! Got Rodgers, Nelson and Finley right now and Nelson and Finley figure to get a lot of looks from Rodgers. Now if I could just make a trade for Lacy and I would be golden. Gonna pick up Crosby too. My kicker has a bye coming and hasn't done much.

Point Packer's picture

The NFL will cease to exist in 25 years - maybe less. Too violent.

denniseckersley's picture

fuck this shit

Longshanks's picture

The good news is Andy Mulumba is no slouch. I think he can hold the fort until either Matthews or Perry comes back. He's a guy on this rise this Mulumba kid. People also forget all Teddy Tee has to do is get on the phone with Mr. Vic So'oto and he can fill in if need be. Do not forget that KC preseason game a few years ago. So'oto was dominating. He just has never been given much of a chance since. Give So'oto a call and we're fine again and everyone here is happy. Cut Kuhn and Hill.

L's picture

Was thinking something similar, but Vic So'oto is on IR w/ the Cardinals.

ILB Terrell Manning on the other hand is currently on the Charger's Practice Squad and if signed by the Packers to the 53 man roster that might allow J.Lattimore to play some outside as well as the inside linebacker position that he manned well this weekend.

All-in-all, someone will probably need to get traded, placed on IR, put back onto the PS or outright released. RB Michael Hill might be a candidate for being put back on the practice squad if the RB position looks to be much healthier, CJ.Wilson is a prime candidate for being traded, J.Bush or one of the newly injured players might go onto IR depending on outlook, and I'm not sure if anyone would get outright released.

Meanwhile, I'm going to assume that WR Myles White gets brought up to the 53 man roster from the PS this week and the Packers look to tryout some additional WRs in order to sign them to the PS and if WR James Jones isn't able to go this week -- look to J.Finley to play as a slot WR w/ possibilities that TE B.Bostick might also get similar opportunities... just a guess though.

Overall, nothing changes from the philosophy of "Next Man Up".

Evan's picture

@AdamSchefter Packers WR James Jones sprained his PCL vs. Ravens but might be able to play Sunday vs. Clev. Team will make decision later this week.

RC Packer Fan's picture

I'll take that...

MarkinMadison's picture

Sweet.

Idiot Fan's picture

My guess is that they play it safe, but I would love to have him. That Browns D is actually pretty good.

hayward4president's picture

Ur f#ckin kidding me!! F####ck!

Packgal's picture

Vic So'oto is on Cardinals IR, after being injured in the only game he's played this year. Desmond Bishop tore his ACL, he's out so maybe the bug just follows former Packer players, too??? Sorry!!!

jim's picture

wow

Longshanks's picture

lol.. You've got to be effing kidding me!! Even So'oto? Damn!! Well, who's next? Is Brady Poppinga still avaiable? How about Aaron Kampman?

L's picture

Thought that B.Poppinga was coaching at BYU?

FITZCORE 1252'S EVO's picture

He's calling college football games, Mostly Iowa state for some reason. He makes a weekly appearance on Dibble and VanDykens radio show. He says "at the end of the day" no fewer than 300 times in his five minute segment.

cheesewhizzer's picture

In Kevin Greene we trust!!!

Evan's picture

Hell, throw a helmet on him and let him get after it.

davyjones's picture

He's kinda old to suit up, but maybe...

cheesewhizzer's picture

I just heard that former Packer Desmond Bishop tore his ACL and will be out for the year. He really was a good guy and never trash-talked his former team and teammates like Greg Jennings. It's sad but it looks like with his torn hamstring history and now the ACL that his career could be over. Sunday wasn't a good day injury-wise for the Packers and one former Packer.

Drealyn Williams's picture

Faaaaaahhhhhk!

cheesewhizzer's picture

Maybe Ted Thompson should suit it up. He was once a linebacker. Seriously, I think Kevin Greene looks in good enough shape to play.

hayward4president's picture

Brad outside when he returns? Lattimore stays in the middle?

RC Packer Fan's picture

From what it sounded like from McCarthy's Press conference, It sounds like Perry and Cobb will be out for a few weeks. Don't know how many but didn't sound like season ending. I'll take that..

Mojo's picture

It's pretty sad when the best news we get regarding injuries is that a player won't be out for the entire year.

This could be our inactives against the Browns: CM3, Hayward, Starks, Brad Jones, James Jones, Cobb and Perry. This would be the best group of inactives in the league by far.

Lucky953's picture

I thought Perry said he'd be back for MN. Maybe with a club foot.

Evan's picture

@AdamSchefter With Packers in need of help, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Green Bay sign WR Tavarres King off Broncos practice squad.

Never heard of the guy - would seem odd for the Packers to pick up a guy from another PS when they have one on their's who knows the system already.

Evan's picture

Sounds like it's happening.

6'0", 190lbs, 4.4 speed. Broncos 5th round pick.

http://www.nfl.com/draft/2013/profiles/tavarres-king?id=2539235

"BOTTOM LINE King lacks tremendous size, and his hands have also been an issue at times, allowing potential big plays to slip through his fingers. However, he's a very fluid player, with impressive quickness and balance. He should be a mid-round selection."

RC Packer Fan's picture

I remember him from the draft, but don't remember what was said about him. If I remember him, I'm thinking he was pretty decent.

Perhaps he could possibly be a return man?

Idiot Fan's picture

I wonder how Myles White feels right now...?

Mojo's picture

And the Bronco have a good group of WR's already, so maybe this guy never got a chance because of numbers. Open up the hood and lets take a look.

Still bummed we never got to see what a healthy Charles Johnson could do(for us at least). Great measurables.

Tibbits's picture

Not good, but if it's not a Lisfrac fracture (the injury that ended Benson's year in 2012), then he's probably only out for around a month. I'm hoping it's a hairline fracture of a metatarsal and will be good as new in 3-4 weeks.

BubbaOne's picture

I skimmed through the comments and was surprised nobody blamed the strength staff for Perry's broken foot.

VApackerfan's picture

They could have strengthened it better and conditioned it a little more....they suck at strength and conditioning

Stroh's picture

Its the training staffs fault for not making these guys take supplements that make their bone titanium. Fire TT, Fire MM, Fire dumb Capers, fire Lovat, Fire McKenzie, Fire Burress. Bunch of dipsticks cant prevent a simple broken bone!

Jamie's picture

Has nobody in the organization heard of foot bone stretching?!?!!

Inexcusable.

hayward4president's picture

Id rather bring up white n go get a freakin OLB

Jamie's picture

I wouldn't at all be supeised to see Datone Jones see some time at OLB.

hayward4president's picture

I dunno ...he's pretty huge.

Joe's picture

Datone Jones in coverage.. right.. ha! Good one!

Al Katraz's picture

Here's a funny. Bishop played part of one game this Sunday, got injured and is out for the season in Viking land. Probably the last time they take one of our castoff's.
Even our X player's are getting hurt early and often.

Ma Linger's picture

The scary thought is, who do we lose in this weeks game? I mean maybe the damage isn't done yet? Ouch. Better keep in contact with the arena league in town and possibly some high- schooler's.
